Puerto Rican Festivals NYC
We have a lot of festivals because we love to party. 😂 Life in Puerto Rico revolves around eating and drinking with family and friends at roadside bars (Chinchorros) along the beach or in the mountains. In New York we have the streets. So we do the same thing.
Street festivals are New York versions of fiestas patronales (patron saint festivals) that take place every weekend in one or two or three or more small towns across Puerto Rico, all year long.

Puerto Rican New York City
The Nuyorican Movement of the late 1960s and 1970s was our “Harlem Renaissance.” New York institutions like the Nuyorican Poets Café, Puerto Rican Traveling Theater, Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural Center and El Museo del Barrio were founded then.
Being a New Yorker means being part of a diaspora. That makes the island bigger than life and makes you dream about it.

New York Puerto Ricans
We may call ourselves “Nuyorican,” but the Nuyorican Movement of the late 1960s and 1970s was a literary and cultural movement in Loisaida (the Lower East Side), El Barrio (East Harlem), Williamsburg and the South Bronx. The Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe in the Lower East Side is a remnant of this time.

Puerto Rico Travel
Puerto Rico really is the island of enchantment. It’s a paradise of natural beauty and Puerto Ricans are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Puerto Rican life centers around eating and drinking with family and friends, on the beach and in the mountains. Come see for yourself. It’s only four hours from New York City.
This little guy is one of the cutest kids we’ve ever seen. In case you didn’t notice, he’s Puerto Rican. 😂 This was at New York’s National Puerto Rican Day Parade.
